09/20/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Dr Pepper was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Crouched at back of feral den, ears low, pupils dilated, hissing, spitting and lunging. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 09/16/17 Tense and wary, sitting on top the kuranda bed. She slow blinks when I tried coaxing her forward. She flinched when the door opened then quickly shifted away with her tail tucked under her body. Very nervous, hisses upon approach. She squints when touched and tolerates brief petting before moving away. Flat ears and starts to grumble. More flight than fight, just needs more time to adjust. Wasn’t interested in treats EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Dr Pepper was crouched in her litter box with her tail wrapped around her body. Reaction when softly spoken to: Dr Pepper lip licks and is wary of her surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Dr Pepper lowers her body with her ears bent flat. Reaction to touch: Dr Pepper flinches slightly when touched, tolerates petting, lip licks then slowly shifts away to the other side of the double kennel. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Dr Pepper has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Dr Pepper tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
